- Many South Africans were amused and some drew attention to the VBS banking scandal
Jacob Zuma has proved to be very popular via social media.
His latest tweet drew a lot of attention even though it only contained 3 words: “Mr. Mofokeng Bank.”
The post was liked more than 1 600 times.
As usual, Zuma had his fair share of supporters but there were those who were quick to criticise.
The tweet referred to a speech made by the former president in 2015 at the Arts and Culture Veterans Gala Dinner.
Addressing the need for black empowerment, Zuma said, ““Benefiting should change the lives of the majority who are black. One day I would be very happy to see a bank called Mr Mofokeng. I don’t know who was Standard or Ned, but I know Mofokeng.”
Briefly.co.za gathered that the speech lived long in the memory of South Africans based on the swift reactions.
Some couldn’t resist referencing the VBS banking woes in response to Zuma’s tweet.
